Apps (as in the kind you download from the Windows Store, iTunes, or Google Play store) require the proper operating system (Windows 8/8.1/10, OSX or iOS, or Android or one of its distros) in order to run apps.

 

I don't know of any other specific requirements.  Apps run under the ecosystem for which they were designed.

Has there ever been created a software so versatile that it could run on Windows, Mac OS and Linux, without having a specific version created for each one? Is such a thing theoretically even possible?

I know of no universal app, though one could definitely be written in languages that are not tied to a specific OS.  It would have to be interpreted rather than compiled so that it could be run under multiple operating systems.  The presentation would likely be quite different under the different platforms.

 

Since there are differences in the user interface and hooks into it under different OSes it's more common to see ports that are customized to the system under which they will be running.

The answer is very simple - you have to have a laptop and you have to download the apps you want to use. That's it.
